Page title displays HTML entity code ' rather than the actual apostrophe character
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

I've only noticed this on one page so far but on en.ws, an author page uses a typographic apostrophe rather than a straight apostrophe and the <title> tag in the HTML renders his name as "G. R. O&#39;Reilly" rather than "G. R. O'Reilly". See https://en.wikisource.org/wiki/Author:G._R._O%27Reilly and view the source to find "<title>G. R. O&amp;#39;Reilly - Wikisource, the free online library</title>"
